the Difference

On Wednesdays, David & Kate take turns going to Grandma and Grandpa's for the afternoon.

Kate, when it's just Kate and me, always wants to go somewhere .... the park, the zoo, for ice cream.
David, when it's just David and me, always wants to just go home and have the house without Kate.

the one about mothers day

There is this picture of my mother holding me. I must be just about Kate's age. I didn't have any hair either. She's looking at me and I'm looking off at ... something. There's so much light we are squinting our eyes.

I find myself at times in that same pose, holding Kate. Focused on her as she takes in what's around her. I see so much of myself in her. In David. Their actions, mannerisms, fears.

And I think of how much I have taken from my mother. And wonder how much she took from hers.
